. Buddy doesn't seem to like dubia roaches. He's almost 2 yrs old. We have a colony of roaches and would like to feed them to him! Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Sometimes they are picky eaters. At 2 years old he should be mainly on salads, but I'd try rotating the roaches in along with a variety of bugs every few days and see if the variety will get his interest. You could also make a game of it and try to get him to chase them across the floor or something like that. I used to take the screen top from a tank and put them on the screen so they'd walk around vertically and that seemed to get more attention from my dragon. I've also seen videos of people putting them inside plastic cat toy balls so they were a little more work to get to.

He's a funny one. He usually doesn't chase the crickets down to catch them. He waits on them to come to him and he'll grab them and eat them! I think he's a lazy hunter! Our roaches hide behind the water dish or his salad dish.

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
